Copy the below into Notepad and save it as HomePageUnlock.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"HomePage"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"HomePage"=dword:00000000

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"HomePage"=dword:00000001

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"**del.HomePage"=" "

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000


Once it's saved as a reg file, right click on it and choose MERGE. Confirm the merge. This should unlock the home page setting abilities. You may have to restart to see the change.

It's a good day when you learn something

Itś in a domain? Do you have admin priviledges, local or otherwise? Better see your administrator if youŕe not one.

Srikanth, Do you have Spybot Search & Destroy installed on that computer?
